Looking after the Environment 

Join Lois and Freya for a fun day learning about how to look after the environment! We are going to be looking at the four R’s:
 

Refuse

Recycle

Reduce 

Repair
 

We will be learning about how we use these words help us to care for our precious environment.

9.30am Activity:
Refuse

We often take the car for short journeys that can be easily walked.

Grown Ups:

Join Lois for a session on why making changes to the way we travel is so important and how this can make you healthier too. This supports children’s knowledge and understanding of how to look after our world and highlights the importance of daily exercise. 

10.30am Activity:
Recycle

Join Freya for some fun recycling activities 

Grown Ups:

Learn about the different materials that we can recycle and how to sort them into the correct recycling bins. This supports children’s knowledge and understanding of how they can make a difference to the environment by recycling.

1:30pm Activity:
Reduce

Reducing the amount of plastic we are buying is a really important thing you can do to help save the environment! 

Grown Ups:
Join Lois for a session on how we can help the environment by making small changes such as using reusable bags. This develops children’s knowledge on how they can they make a difference to the environment by the choices they make.

2:30pm Activity:
Repair

The last session of the day requires a crafty pair of hands and a lot of imagination. 

Grown Ups:

If you've finished these and still have time for fun...

Watch this video on renewable energy sources, particularly listening to the first bit about solar energy. Solar energy is one way the environment gives back to us! The sunlight can be turned into energy and used in your homes, nurseries and schools! This is just one benefit of sunlight, can you name any more? Here are some clues: Think about why you need less jackets in the summer, or why plants like the sun?
